Not much to talk about. I did note the Fed Beige book indicated regional banks are continuing to loan and may be picking up business because the large banks are not loaning. Could be good for banks like BB&T to expand business at the expense of the larger banks.
True. I am hoping that is the case. I do think that BBT will continue to be the top performing regional bank as time goes on, and when they announce the dividend in a week or so, others will jump on board as that becomes proof positive of their commitment to the dividend and the health of the bank.
